Lonely Planet Italy is a travel guidebook that provides copious information on everything from Italian art to legal matters. There is a great ‘Special Features’ section that deals with some of the country’s most defining aspects, including Cinque Terre, Venetian artistry and coffee culture.

 

One of the best features of the book is the large selection of different maps, be it of a city, region or the entire country. Some of the city maps are so detailed, I was able to use it to navigate my way around. This is a great addition as it means you can save on buying a separate map by simply referring to the one from the book.

 

Another aspect of the guidebook that I found to be incredibly useful was the information provided to suit every budget. They give information on luxury hotels and backpacker hostels, high quality restaurants and cheap take-away eats, where you should be more lenient with your cash and where you shouldn’t. This is different to some travel guides and blogs that may focus only on the luxurious side of travel, providing information solely on boutique hotels, expensive clothes shops and posh dining.

 

For me, the information on where to find tourist offices in each city was spot on. I always make sure that these are the first places I go to when I arrive somewhere as you can pick up free maps, find out the best things to do and discover events that you may not have known were going on.

 

One of the downsides to Lonely Planet Italy is the size of the book and the difficulty in carrying it around with you. At nearly 1000 pages in length, it cannot easily be put in a bag, meaning you will have take photos of pages or simply cut them out if you want to use the information when you are out there.

Pros
  • Large selection of different maps that can be used to navigate cities and regions
  • Provides information that caters to every budget
  • Information on where to find the tourist office in each city
Cons
  • Size of book makes it impossible to carry around when out and about

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
